A fun read where most of the action is on a Carribbean Cruise ship, Little White Lies was an engaging and quick read. The setting does not overwhelm the budding relationship, and while several secondary characters wander through the story without solid and obvious intention, their impact does not diminish the overall enjoyment.
Royce is sexy and dashing, a touch of the devil-may-care bad boy who has a heart. Madalyn is reeling from a broken engagement, and has always lived her life by the rules. Royce is just what she needed to ‘loosen up’ and she is the perfect match to show him that sometimes a chance with one woman is the right move.
While there are some choppy insets of dialogue that feels much younger than the characters, and a few questions were never really answered, but these actually turned into fairly minor issues that were less memorable when the read was finished. Sexy and steamy with insets of humor, this is a wonderful ‘vacation themed’ romance with plenty to enjoy.

About the Book:
When attorney Madalyn Russell dumps her fiancé at the altar, she temporarily escapes the scrutiny of her friends and family on her honeymoon cruise. Too bad she forgot she is assigned to dine at the “newlywed” table on the fully booked cruise. Goodbye exquisite cuisine, hello standard buffet fare. Nothing will tempt her to enter that lion’s den. Or so she thinks.
When the board of directors orders devilishly handsome Royce Spencer to seek rest alone on a cruise, he sets his sights on Madalyn and offers a deliciously indecent proposal to her dining room dilemma. He’ll pose as her husband in exchange for companionship during the cruise. Royce is a gifted liar with a great sense of humor that has everyone at the newlywed table laughing and no one suspecting the truth.Is the opportunity to enjoy all the ship has to offer worth the little white lies they'll have to tell? What is it about Royce that makes Madalyn want to engage in a fling at the age of thirty for the first time in her life and toss her tightly held beliefs overboard?
The whirlwind love affair catches them both by surprise. Is it possible that in the midst of all the little white lies, they will each discover their soul mate? And when Royce is accused of white-collar crime with Madalyn as his key witness, will Madalyn finally learn that life is not always as black and white as it seems?
